Who Can Be Held Liable for My Bronx, NY Accident, Injuries, and Compensation Needs?

Identifying who is responsible for your injury is one of the first steps we will take together.

The parties who can be held liable for your Bronx, NY accident, injuries, and compensation needs depend on the specific circumstances surrounding the incident.

That may include, but is not limited to:

  • Negligent Drivers

If your accident involved a motor vehicle, the driver(s) responsible for the crash may be liable for your injuries and damages if their negligence, such as speeding, distracted driving, or running a red light, caused the accident.

  • Property Owners

If your accident occurred on someone else’s property, such as a slip and fall in a store or a trip on a sidewalk, the property owner may be held liable for failing to maintain safe premises or address hazards that contributed to your injury.

  • Employers

If your accident occurred while you were working, your employer may be liable for your injuries if they failed to provide a safe work environment, adequate training, or proper equipment.

  • Construction Companies

If your accident occurred at a construction site, the construction company or contractor overseeing the project may be liable for your injuries if they failed to comply with safety regulations, provide proper training, or maintain a safe work environment.

  • Manufacturers

If your injury was caused by a defective product, such as a malfunctioning vehicle part or a faulty piece of equipment, the manufacturer may be liable for your injuries under product liability laws.

  • Government Entities

If your accident involved a government entity, such as a city bus or a public property, the government agency responsible for maintaining that entity may be liable for your injuries if their negligence contributed to the accident.

Determining liability in personal injury cases can be complex and may require a thorough investigation of the accident’s circumstances.

What is the Personal Injury Claims Process in The Bronx, New York?

Each Bronx, New York, personal injury case is unique based on the specific facts involved. However, almost any personal injury claim will follow a standard claim process and go through similar steps.

That may include, but is not limited to:

  • Consultation

During our initial consultation, we will evaluate your claim and determine whether you have a case. If you do, we will start filing your case and preparing the required paperwork.

We will negotiate with them once we have built a strong case against the negligent party or their insurer. Most personal injury cases were settled during this time. If the insurance company agrees to pay a fair amount, the case will be settled without going to trial, and you won’t have to appear in court.

If the negligent party refuses to make a fair offer, we will discuss what happens next in detail and may advise you to take the matter to court. There is no guarantee on how large an award a judge or jury will give in your case, but going to court is often the only way to get the fair compensation you deserve for your injuries.

  • Collecting Evidence

We will immediately start a complete investigation into the facts and circumstances of your personal injury claim.

Often, we will begin by:

  • Visiting the scene of the accident to take pictures.
  • Obtaining any accident reports that form the basis of your claim.
  • Identify all negligent parties and set up claims with their insurance carriers.
  • Ordering medical records and any bills associated with treatment for injuries sustained.

With our skilled legal advocates handling your claim, you can pursue fair compensation and focus on your recovery without the stress and uncertainty of handling the legal process independently.

  • Submitting a Demand Package

The demand package collects all medical bills and documents illustrating your injuries and wage loss. Once the demand package is complete, we will review it with you to ensure it is complete. As soon as you approve the demand package, we send it to the insurance carrier for the negligent party, and they will then conduct their review of the demand.

  • Negotiations

Insurance adjusters are usually reluctant to pay victims the total compensation they deserve. They may offer low settlements to avoid going through the entire legal process of negotiations, arbitration, and even a trial to obtain the total amount you deserve. We will negotiate until we reach an agreement that fully compensates you for your injuries or until we reach an impasse.

  • Settlement

We can negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that entirely and adequately compensates you for your injuries. We will prepare a settlement agreement outlining the terms of the settlement.

If the insurance company is unwilling to offer the kind of settlement you deserve, we move into the third stage of the personal injury claims process, litigation. If you have questions about how your unique personal injury claim will unfold, contact our Bronx law firm today to learn more about how we customize our legal strategies to fit each client’s needs.

What Do I Need to Prove to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim in the Bronx, New York?

If you want to make an injury claim (either through an insurance claim or lawsuit), you usually need to be able to prove that the person you are claiming against was somehow negligent and that their negligence led to your injuries (your damages).

The four critical elements required to establish negligence in a Bronx personal injury claim include:

  • Duty of Care

The first element demonstrates that the defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff. This duty of care is a legal obligation to avoid causing harm to others or their property. It varies depending on the circumstances of the case. For instance, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely, doctors have a duty to provide competent medical care to their patients, and property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises for visitors.

  • Breach of Duty

The second element shows that the defendant breached the duty of care owed to the plaintiff. This means that the defendant failed to meet the standard of care expected in the situation. Proving that the defendant’s actions (or inactions) fell below what a reasonable person would do under similar circumstances often requires demonstrating that the defendant’s conduct was negligent, reckless, or intentional.

  • Causation

The third element establishes a causal connection between the defendant’s breach of duty and the plaintiff’s injury or damages. There are two aspects of causation: cause in fact (actual cause) and proximate cause (legal cause). Cause means that the defendant’s actions were a direct cause of the plaintiff’s harm, while proximate cause refers to whether the harm was a foreseeable consequence of the defendant’s actions.

  • Damages

The fourth element involves proving that the plaintiff suffered actual damages due to the defendant’s breach of duty. Damages can include physical injuries, emotional distress, property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses.
